The crater of Mt Paektu full of mysteries gives a view of extraordinary falls, too.

In the rainy season, the cliffs of the crater are covered with falling water, forming crater waterfalls. When a strong northwesterly wind blows up the slopes of the crater, it changes the downward flow into “upward waterfalls” like spout from a fountain. These extraordinary “upward waterfalls” are seen in the spring thaw from May to June and in the rain spell from July to August.
